About

Our September 19 Community Conversations center on two films from New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV). The two short documentaries provide a unique insider’s perspective on the integration challenges immigrants face and the contributions they make to our culture, economy and social fabric. Michael Sheridan, the Founding Director of NIRV, will provide insight about the makers and subjects. The viewing will be followed by discussions in both Spanish and English.
